The man calling the winner numbers in this week’s Mega Millions jackpot made a very public mistake, one that has resulted in temporarily suspended payouts. John Crow mistook a 9 for a 6 in his televised announcement. As you might expect, that caused quite a bit of confusion for viewers in regard to the $86 million jackpot.
… Crow apparently didn’t see the line under the number designating it as such. The lottery is asking people to hang on to their tickets for now until the confusion is sorted out.
